Goose Steps to Peace

By Jonathan Mitchell
Little, Brown, 1931
320 pp. $2.50

The author, an American journalist who has seen much service in Europe and has become well acquainted with the technique of propaganda and newspaper campaigns, reviews the efforts that have been made since the war to prevent the outbreak of new conflicts. In simple and straightforward style he gives the naked facts of the policies of the Powers chiefly concerned, and sets forth the aims and accomplishments of the various post-war conferences. He has little confidence in the diplomats and doubts that security against war can be attained by the signing of pacts. He sees a possible solution of the problem in a Great Power alliance, which would include Germany, Russia and Japan, as well as the United States, England and France. The author does not overlook the obstacles but does not consider them insuperable. A book of this sort is bound to arouse disagreement, but is refreshingly realistic.
